The SC Villa hierarchy with their President, Omar Mandela at the helm, have coerced Vice President Immanuel Ben Misagga to resign from the role, Football256 understands.
The development comes at a moment when the record champions are dealing with hooliganism-led sanctions, that were imposed by the FUFA Disciplinary Panel.
The sanctions came due to the club’s fans’ hooliganism in their last week 2-1 defeat to Wakiso Giants FC.
Misagga, who also doubled as the overall fans’ coordinator didn’t particularly side with the fact that it were Villa fans that pelted stones, calling out FUFA, and accusing them of betting and poor officiation.
“Main problem in football, inept FUFA has failed miserably to stop betting local games and hooliganism,” tweeted Misagga in one of his Twitter rants.
“Whisper to your goddess FA helm in a helmet of blackmail and a convict, you waste money to invest in local football while others are betting games predetermined,” he added in another tweet.
“We need to get solutions for hooliganism, betting, and predetermined results. Those who go to NBSport for visibility stunts should not be given time to cause more social off-pitch hooliganism. FA created these football bandits when he (they) wanted the group to fight for him (them).”
These and more tweets did not go down well with the FUFA Ethics Committee who in turn sanctioned him on Friday.
“The FUFA Ethics Committee has written to Ben Misagga in the context of comments made against match officials and putting the game of football into disrepute,” a FUFA statement partly said.
“The above comments appear to be against the FUFA Rules and Regulations in as far as insinuating a likely situation of unprofessionalism against the match officials and brings the game of football into disrepute.”
“The FUFA Ethics and Disciplinary Committee has henceforth opened disciplinary proceedings against Ben Misagga for a possible violation of article 13 of the FUFA Ethics and Disciplinary Code.”
In a deeper drown, it is reported that Misagga was forced into resigning by the club Executive, a fact he didn’t go down well with, inducing even more stinging tweets from the renowned Engineer and football administrator.
“We support because of passion. If there was no passion, I wouldn’t share a cup with shallowness of ideology, There is love in holding and there is love in letting go. So I let go the desert of old empire digging a deep blue necropolis in the park,” Misagga tweeted.
He latter added: “Being a Villa Executive is not an occupation, those who think can cage my opinion are in the wrong lane. You have decided to dance on the tunes of a deceitful willful FA.”
This is the latest of the structural and administrative conflicts within the club, as they’ve been marred in the same for over the years.
